A Quick Make, Yellow Pencil Skirt

20 November 2017

For the longest time I have had this yellow fabric sitting in my fabric stash, the idea was always to sew a pencil skirt with a bit more style lines than this turned out, but, I must say I'm really pleased with the outcome plus I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of drafting, cutting and sewing up a project all in 2 hours tops (did you read that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) with some time(1 hour) off to go watch tennis no less.

Now I know for some of you out there it's not a big deal but I'm a slow sewist and this was like a huge revelation to me.

This all started when I uploaded my video on how to sew with twin needles in the video I actually test out the Prym stretch twin needle on a piece of this yellow fabric and I liked the results a whole lot.

 So this tutorial is not just to show you how to use and thread a twin/double needle on my machine but I think it's pretty much gonna be the same across 95% of most sewing machines, still just check to make sure.

Sew from what I can gather, since 2014, in the month of November there has been a sewing photo a day challenge called #bpsewvember that goes on on Instagram.

For us sewist its so much fun to get to know others in the worldwide sewing community and see what drives them, see what you have in common or how you differ etc

Even if you don't sew its such a fun tag to check out. its hosted by the lovely Amanda over at Bimble & Pimble
